Downtown Industrial Renovation For $2.288 Million

A spacious and unique home in downtown LA is on the market for $2,288,000.

While passers-by might mistake it for a warehouse, the cold industrial facade conceals a comfortable, modern home. It features a huge, open floor plan living space, with 23-foot-high ceilings accented with striking, handcrafted wood and steel beams.

This Arts District house was built in 2004 but completely redesigned in 2010. The remodel resulted in a gourmet kitchen with Carerra marble counters, a bisazza tile bathroom, and an edgy loft space, among other features. The sleek concrete slab floors and multiple skylights create a clean, modern atmosphere for the two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence.

While the building itself is promising, its attractiveness is heightened by its glass and steel walls, which pivot to open up to a large backyard. The grounds have both a fireplace and a fire pit, as well as a sizable gated parking lot. If even that isn't enough room, there is a cavernous garage that makes a perfect studio or office.
